I am reaching out to all my friends who have been fortunate enough to meet, the amazing man Dan Blenkinsop. He has recently been diagnosed with a tumour on his pancrease. The doctors have told him it is inoperable. So I am reaching out to everyone for help. I want to do what I can to make sure he is able to enjoy the last of his time with his family. Dan got a late start finding his dream career but once he started Iron Working there was no turning back. He loved the brotherhood and getting away from others up on the iron. There was no slowing him down and wanted to learn everything about the trade and wouldn’t hesitate to do anything to help a member out. He loves the outdoors and was always up for some mudding, but the most important part of his life is his children. He would give anything for his 2 daughters, and stepson who took on as his own without a second thought. Through all of this his wife has had to take a leave from work leaving the family with very minimal income. Benefits will eventually kick in but all of us know they are never as much as being able to work and provide for your family.
